The green E-V Sunny Solar Powered Electric Bike harnesses the sun's light rays with the solar panels in its' wheels. These solar panels hubcaps can maintain a constant charge to the batteries which in turn power a 500 watt motor on the front wheel, giving you a top speed of about 19 mph, not bad! The downside is that the E-V weighs about 75 lbs because of the solar cells, battery and other electronics that make it green in the first place. You can buy the E-V Sunny bike for around $1290 or convert your bike for $795.
